ID: MRFR//1973-HCR | 135 Pages | Author: Anshula Mandaokar| July 2024

Global Bonded Abrasive Market Overview

The  Bonded Abrasive Market Size was valued at USD 11.012 Billion in 2022. The Bonded Abrasive industry is projected to grow from USD 11.45 Billion in 2023 to USD 20 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Bonded abrasives are abrasives grains and fillers bonded together through bonding materials such as vitreous, resin, rubber, shellac, epoxy, magnesite, and others. Numerous improvements in tools and machinery processes have been made with the help of new abrasive grains and bond advancements to increase the performance of bonded abrasive products. The prime role is played by the bonding agent that holds the structural abrasives in a specific array giving uniqueness to every bonded adhesive. The bond offers high strength and thermal resistance for grinding and cutting, or it can be weak and thermal sensitive for polishing. Each product is made to serve a specific purpose, such as giving a precise finish, cutting, rough grinding, stock removal, and others.
